What is the difference between a retail and reseller sub account?
The main difference is how they pay for registrations, and whether or not they have reseller options.

RETAIL
will bill their credit card on file for every transaction
you (the parent account) will pay 3% sales fee and a 95 cent transaction fee for every order
they do not have access to create Sub Accounts, RegistryRocket sites, the PDQ, and they cannot download the API sample scripts.

RESELLER
they will refill their account to pay for orders (refill fees are paid by the sub account holder).
the parent reseller does not pay any fees
each transaction is deducted from their balance
they can download the API, setup RegistryRocket links, create a PDQ and create sub accounts
sub accounts can use their own merchant services for the API (they cannot use eNom merchant services).

Previous Question | Back to the Top | Next Question





Q16 - I've got an enom account from someone; I'm afraid the person above me may delete my account or increase my pricing list?
A16 - Read the following
Here I'm going to teach you how to protect your eNom reseller account ( no matter who is your ETP )
To protect your eNom reseller account ( the term protect means you don't want the ETP or the parent account to delete your account nor to increase your pricing list )


You will need to do two easy steps

1- Push a domain to your account ( the account you want to protect ) or add some funds to it ( this will prevent the ETP from deleting your account

2- Create a sub account under you ,and make its status " retail status" and lower the pricing list to the lowest you can for every TLD and for the hosting package and for these services too Email forwarding , URL forwarding , DNS Hosting ,POP3 email Paks ,ID Protect NAME Registration and email forwarding NAME email forwarding
In a word reduce the pricing list for that retail account to the maximum you can and for all the services ( not only the domains)
( now your ETP will not be able to increase your pricing list because it will affect your sub-account )
I did try this method myself and it works 100%. I couldn't even increase the pricing list for reseller I had protected even for one cent this the message I got when I tried


".com.tw: Register Reseller price cannot be set higher than existing reseller sub accounts"

The above idea will work even if the reseller account you have was 6.95 or 7.95 or more
As a special case if you have a 8.95 reseller account or more it will be ok also to create a reseller account under you instead of the retail account ( you must lower the pricing list to the minimum )
For your own security when you create a retail account don't use the same password as the main account, don't leave a domain or any funds in that retail account.

Q17 - I'm a sub-sub-sub-reseller of someone, Does it matter how far am I from enom?
A17 - in my own opinion it doesn't matter, I know many people will not agree with me, but I did that myself: I created an account 7 levels far from enom I couldn't find any difference at all.
Previous Question | Back to the Top | Next Question





Q18 - Where can I save money in enom when compared to using ev1?
A18 - Ev1 will not let you register domains for others.
Ev1 gives you a domain name with only DNS management, which means: no URL forward , no email forward , poor control over your domains
The most important is when you use an eNom reseller account your customers will see your company name when they search WHOIS.
There are many companies ( registrars ) offering cheap domain registration even cheaper than eNom 6.95 pricing but I believe that no one can beat enom's services ( this is just my own opinion )
Previous Question | Back to the Top | Next Question





Q19 - I have an enom account how to know my pricing list?
A19 - login to your account then on the left hand panel click on home then click on pricing info.
or login to your account and click on this link http://www.enom.com/pricing.asp ( You MUST be logged in )
Previous Question | Back to the Top | Next Question





Q20 - What does this means "default pricing list"(for resellers only)?
A20 - It means the default price you will offer for every retail account under you , it will affect the account/s you will create NOT the accounts you have created already
Previous Question | Back to the Top | Next Question





Q21 - Is it useful to setup my "default pricing list"?
A21 - Yes , because it will save you lots of time later when you create your sub accounts
Previous Question | Back to the Top | Next Question





Q22 - How to modify the default pricing list?
A22 - login to your account then click on " my eNom " then click on setting then click on TLD pricing tab or you can after you login click on the following link http://www.enom.com/myaccount/RenewalPricing.asp?tab=1 modify the pricing you want then click save changes. If enom does not reject your pricing that means you are done. If rejected read the instructions and increase your pricing. One point you must keep in your mind the pricing list you are setting is for a retail account not for a reseller account so you must be aware of the ( 0.95 + 3% ) credit card processing fee.
